Am ranting. I received a photo saying “our first abandoned baby! Really, tiny, no fur. Can we save it?” I’ve explained to this person before what to do as they’d found a pup previously and sadly left it in the sun all day. I had been contacted much later in the day and drove over to find a dead pup in a box.
A week later another call from the same person to say a bat was in their shower room plughole. I again advised what to do, and as I was already feeding another bat my hubby went to collect it. Apparently, it had been left on a windowsill. No bat in a box, as arranged, they’d just left it out! Hubby hunted around, and bless him, he eventually found the little one on the ground in the undergrowth.
6/6/22 Call from same, asking if the naked bat in the photo could be saved? I replied, yes… and explained it’s a newborn. The response was ‘that it has probably been eaten because it’s now gone.’ Am livid. They had taken its photo, and just left it, but then messaged to say it had disappeared! grrr! I don’t know why they even bothered to contact me. This person obviously just couldn’t care less. Rant over.
